I got my ATH-50S as a gift for my home studio. I was shocked how good they were for 150 bucks. Great for /\/\ETAL! Straight into my iPhone or laptop, I actually prefer them to my Grados in some ways. Yes, they are slightly bass heavy, but that works to their advantage. The slight laid back mids and highs just mean you can crank it up louder without ear pain. It's a solid choice if your limited to that budget.
